Apple has sewn this protective measure into the system so as not to become guilty due to problems with the headphones. Still, they can fall out while you sleep. Or the volume will not be enough.
So the iPhone alarm clock will lose the signal to both the headphones and the speakers. If you need only the first option, you have to install the application from the App Store.
Which application should I set so that the alarm works only with headphones?
There is no end to wake-up calls in the App Store. Almost everyone knows how to work correctly in the background, and you don’t need to leave an iPhone unlocked.
But for some reason not everyone managed to play the signal through headphones only.
I won’t do it from the post a selection of software with such a function, it is better to indicate them in the comments, if you know. Just give one option that worked for me.
This is a Private Alarm from a Japanese developer:
Even In the reviews they write that this is the only noticeable program that plays the sound of the alarm clock exclusively through the headphones. Perhaps there are others, but Private Alarm definitely works.
Up to 4 simultaneously working alarms are set here. You can choose from a dozen pretty crazy signals (perfect!) Or your own music.
I checked Private Alarm today, I confirm – it plows as it should. It doesn’t play through speakers, only in headphones.
There is a bug: the pause function (Snooze) does not work. So wake up as it should. Or close the program at your own peril and risk, trying not to fall back asleep.
Otherwise, the program is good and can help those who are in the same situation as me – others sleep nearby, but you only need to wake up.
Important: the program cannot be closed. Then the alarm 100% will not work. Set the time in the program, block the iPhone, insert the headphones and go to sleep. Then everything will be OK.
And aren’t wireless headphones better?
There was also such an idea: take the iPhone to another room, and put on the Bluetooth headphones yourself. Then I will definitely hear the alarm before the others.
But this is a so-so solution.
With a long period of inactivity, Bluetooth headphones almost always disconnect from the device. Some do this just 5 minutes after stopping the playback of any sound, others half an hour or an hour later.
Even if your model does not do this (which is very rare), the question of battery life still remains. Any two hours will work a couple of hours. But 7-8 hours for a good half of wireless headphones is no longer an option.
The risk is much greater: if the Bluetooth headphones let you down, nobody will hear the alarm, even you.
So which is better the old fashioned way, with a wire. I hope you didn’t lose the complete adapter from Lightning to 3.5 mm.
